Suzanne Walsh is an artist and writer working with performance, voice, music, and audio, video and photography. They use recitation, recordings, vocalisations, acting, and text appropriation to create rituals, invocations, poetic disturbances, guided tours, and performative lectures. The non-human world, from the unseen to the animal, is the main concern of the work, as an attempt to re-order structures of value. Their work in wildlife rescue is also an ongoing subject of exploration. They are also frequent collaborators with other writers, artists, musicians and film-makers.
Suzanne also publishes essays, art-writing, poetry, and fiction, in both literary and art publications. These include gorse, Fallowmedia, Winter Papers, and Hotel, and art publications such as Circa and RHA publications. Originally from Wexford, their practice has been supported by the Arts Council, Culture Ireland, Arts and Disability Ireland, and Fire Station Artist Studios (in residence 2016-2019). They have performed/shown/published work in shows including The Body Electric at The Model Gallery, Sligo (2021), Tulca (2020), Winter Papers at Engage Studios Galway (2019), Embodiment at Gallery Michaelastock, Vienna (2019), and Post Opera at TENT Gallery Rotterdam (2019).
